Building Websites from Scratch

Hello
I am currently trying to practice what I learn on “Building Websites from Scratch” on codepen.io. I’m new to codepen.io and what’s wondering the difference between creating a pen versus a project. When should I use one versus the other?

Nice question Patricia!

The brief explanation is:

  • Pens give you three panels: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. You can use preprocessors and external resources and such, but are limited to the three editors.

  • Projects are more powerful in that you get a complete file system. You can have multiple HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files (among other file types).

I hope this helps =)
